Each Head Wine not only represents Alex Head's strong views on what makes balanced, drinkable wines but a guarantee of absolute quality, value and consistency. Head Wines is an open journey of learning.
Know from whence you came. If you know whence you came, there are absolutely no limitations to where you can go.
James Arthur Baldwin
Graduating from Sydney University in 1997 with a degree in Biochemistry, Alex entered the Wine Industry. After a trip through the major wine-growing vineyards of Europe, he immediately started working in fine-wine management, wholesale importing and an auction house to gain a broad understanding of the world of fine wine. He then worked vintages with the wineries he held in the highest regard; Tyrrells in the Hunter, Torbreck, Laughing Jack and Cirillo Estate in the Barossa Valley followed and in December of 2008 he gained a Producer's Licence and released his first wines to the public.
When I started out in the wine industry, I quickly fell in love with shiraz from the Barossa Valley, South Australia. However, it was the discovery of shiraz from Côte Rotie in France's Rhone Valley that would ultimately give me the inspiration to work as a winemaker.
